How to create a vps server

A VPS server can be a great way to have your own server that is affordable and easy to set up. In this article, we will show you how to create a VPS server using virtualization software such as VirtualBox or VMware.

We will assume that you have already installed the virtualization software and have created a new virtual machine. If you have not done this yet, please refer to the documentation for your software.

Now that you have created a new virtual machine, we will need to install an operating system on it. For this tutorial, we will be using Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS. You can download the ISO from the Ubuntu website.

Once you have downloaded the ISO, you will need to mount it to the virtual machine. This can be done in the virtualization software’s settings for the virtual machine. Please refer to the documentation for your software for more information.

Once the ISO is mounted, you can start the virtual machine and begin the installation process. The installation process is pretty straight forward and shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. Once the installation is complete, you can boot into the server and begin using it.

Now that you have a basic server up and running, you will probably want to install some additional software on it. For this tutorial, we will be installing the LAMP stack, which includes Apache, MySQL, and PHP.

To install the LAMP stack, you can use the following command:

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

This will install all of the necessary software for a basic LAMP stack. Once the installation is complete, you can test it by creating a file called test.php in the /var/www/html directory and adding the following code to it:

echo “This is a test.”;


If you navigate to http://your-server-ip/test.php in a web browser, you should see the text “This is a test.”

That’s it! You now have a basic LAMP stack up and running on your server.
